Writer, Editor, Teacher
Hello, Reader! Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I'm glad you're here.
I'm Sarah Garfinkel and I'm a writer, editor, and educator. I live in Google Docs and also San Francisco.
I write humor and satire for the New Yorker, McSweeney's, Reductress, The Rumpus, and Electric Literature, among other fun publications. I'm also an assistant editor of "Funny Women" on The Rumpus.
I teach writing at Harvard University, Columbia University, Write the World, and 1:1. I've been lucky to work with students all over the world, both remotely and in-person. I love creating and adapting original curriculum for all ages. Genres of writing I teach include personal narrative, opinion/Op-ed, academic essay, college essay, and humor. I'm also developing curriculum for a few brand-new courses (ooh la la!).
If you found this page because you are looking for 1:1 college essay coaching, upcoming writing workshops, and/or my humor/essay/Op-ed editing services, then please send a message via the form at the bottom of the page. Let me know which freelance services interest you!
